    So I heard I am getting some nice fish soon (Including a Bangaii etc) and I need to get rid of some of the fish in the tank as some of them (Damsels) is really becoming too aggressive towards other inhabitants.
    After using all the nets I have, bottles, fish traps, hooks with bait on, I gave up....

    So I decided to do it the easy way- I walked to the sump, netted out my Baby and added him to the Main Display- Now I know that the unwanted fish will get caught, unfortunately also some fish I do not want to get rid off, but what the heck, I am getting new Fish (Dean;) )

    And meet my fish trap (And Yes, it does work, did it before):

    Nah, it is a Rockod species, we call it Buthchers Prick cause of his spine s on the side of his gillplates.

    Remember long long time ago I had to strip a friends tank and got some fish, nennies and clownfish etc, well this was in his sump, and I felt too bad to kill it and I knew it was not going to survive if I put it back as he had it for about a year in his sump. Time surely flies as this one has been with me now for almost a year. (Lent him out to another local some months ago to help with a tiny problem- 03 days later he brought it back- needless to say the problem was solved.

    I did not want to mention it before, as some will say it's cruel/ wrong etc etc, but yes, it does feed out of my hand and really reminds me of my Freshwater Oscars....

    At least he has a purpose in my setup- even though it cost me money (Losing fish I paid for), but still worth it. Herkie just loves him and my wife wants to eat him....LoL

    Yeah, but he has a backup (Typical in South Africa nowadays), if he does not do his work properly, then the Blue and Yellow Rockod hiding in the Corner will see to it. But like I said, the Blue Yellow Rockod is just there for backup.....LoL
